comment “The following packages have been kept back:” Why and how do I solve it?
In cases where this problem is due to a messup with apt preferences (pinning), I found reinstallation of the kept packages helped me: apt-get install --reinstall <packages>.

comment .bashrc not executed when opening new terminal
So if you have created ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login on your system and want to keep them, but still want ~/.profile and from there ~/.bashrc executed, you can source it from your own ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login with a line containing source "$HOME/.profile". Gives you back the colored output of ls also in login shells!
